Drug Discovery Group

Established in late 2012, the Drug Discovery Group (DDG) is based at UCL School of Pharmacy and is composed of scientists with a combined 50+ years' experience in pharma, biotech and academic drug discovery. The group has recently expanded to include screening (enzyme & cell). 

The role of the group is to provide theoretical and practical drug discovery expertise to support the progression of projects and to contribute to the development of a successful pipeline within UCL. 

The team aims to be complementary to medicinal chemistry and chemical biology research in the School of Pharmacy, the Wolfson Institute for Biomedical Research and the Department of Chemistry.
